Vortex EP

Resonance Records
Max Chapman teams up with Azz! Johnston for whirling EP, 'Vortex'. Five chunking club tracks worthy of their own respective release, in fact. Lead track, ‘Vortex’ builds up around a five-note falling bassline progression and signalling vocal sample loop. ‘All I Want’ and ‘So Deep’ are sweaty heads-down-arms-up affairs but allow some breathing space in their breakdowns, before returning to form. ‘The Way’ plays upon a syncopated vocal sample and bassline progression, to great effect, and with wonderful energy at the drop. ‘Hypnotise’ does exactly that with its percussive power and repetitive vocal signals to spin you into a frenzy.
